killer fisher

gonna try some of them for rainbow trout fishing and wondering because they are so light and cant cast very far with them how do u add weight to them ?????
killer fisher

how far up do i put them

I tend to put them above a swivel
Here is my attempt to show you in a crappy diagram:

---- = line
RT = rooster tail lure
S = swivel
8 = split shot


I hope this some how helps. I tend to use 2-3 split shots which get it the distance that I need. It doesn't really mess up the lure action too much either and keeps the lure moving straight instead of moving up
